Publisher's description: How many times have you read the caption next to a work of art in a museum or gallery, or a review of an exhibition, and found yourself none the wiser? The language in which modern art is described can be even more mystifying than the art itself. Now, a fully updated and expanded edition of the acclaimed Tate Guide to Modern Art Terms offers a clear and reliable guide, with more than 450 pithy entries on the full range of international modern and contemporary art. Drawing on the expertise of Tate, the book provides an authoritative and up-to-date resource, small enough to fit into a bag or pocket. Spanning the dawn of Impressionism to the digital age, every term -- whether a theme, movement, medium, or technique -- is defined with clarity and precision. This is the perfect companion for all those wanting to increase their understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art.
